Call for scores

UNM 2021, Aarhus: Call for Works


Ung Nordisk Musik is an annual festival for young composers, sound artists, and performance artists based in any of the Nordic countries. In 2021 the festival takes place on 16-22/8 in Aarhus, Denmark. The theme of the 2021 festival, (un)common ground, suggests both the mutually understood and the rarefied.

There are no stylistic criteria. Experimental, instrumental, electronic, installation, multimedia, performance-based works, etc., will all be taken into consideration.

UNM will book everything needed for the performance of the selected works – the performers, the spaces and technical equipment – based on the works themselves. The largest possible ensemble is an augmented sinfonietta (full orchestra works will not be considered).

An independent jury of 3 professional practitioners within music will select a total of 7 works.

People born in 1991 or later are eligible for applying. If you are not a Swedish citizen, you should be residing, studying or having a considerable amount of your artistic practice in Sweden.
